Hey Mike
Good to hear from you. I just bought and am using my new indoor bike. It’s $2,000 and received it in four days. You have an option of using other software like Zwift etc for $14/mo. I set it up myself using their tool kit which is $50   Thanks 😉 he bike is super quiet and well designed. I love it! 
You can check it out

Keep on pedaling 😀

Hi everybody!   As we are fond of saying in Reno, winter is coming.  (That’s pretty catchy!).   I am still trying to get back in shape after last year’s calamity so I am considering buying an indoor trainer.  So I would love to get the opinions (and I know you have them) on these questions:

1. Is it better to buy a Peloton-style or Smart trainer and if so, why?

2. If you’ve experience with a smart trainer, which one would you recommend and how easy is it to set up and get going?   What ancillary purchases are desirable?

3. What do you wish you knew before you purchased one of these machines?

From what little I know, there probably isn’t a single correct answer for every situation and individual preference which is why I would hoping to draw upon the collective wisdom of the club.

In advance, thanks!!   Safe riding and happy trails to all of you!
